Terry ElliottI wish I understood teaching and learning as much as this person gets operations engineering. Why do I read articles that I only vaguely 'get'? Because they are testimony to the unknown unknowns of the world, a balm for the hubris and bias in my own life
In our last script published here, we approached our Networked Narratives course (@NetNarr) in an emergent fashion. This next installment considers how students explore digital identity via a number of role-play activities, influenced by a few…
